Forum: movies Subject: encoding

I'm trying to encode some of my own films for uploading to the archive. I want to mainly use quicktime, but will also encode for windows media player and real player.

I'm having trouble choosing the right combination of settings (for encoding to quicktime mpeg 2 and 4) for quality and size. Does anyone have any recommendations? Or can anyone point me the direction of a list of what settings are best for what?

I'm willing to do two versions of everything, one small and one larger, I just don't like loosing frames and too much quality.

I'm using the adobe media encoder that's within premiere pro.

If you submit the file as a MPEG-2, the Internet Archive contribution system will automatically generate smaller files for you.

When I encode MPEG-2 I try to use these parameters:

Video: 720 x 480, 9Mbps VBR (this is pretty high and will make big files, you can have a lower bitrate, but I wouldn't go below 5Mbps.
Audio: 192Kbps, 48Khz, MPEG layer 1, stereo.

Hope this helps.
